British artist/filmmaker Steve McQueen chronicles the 1981 “stinky” protest by Irish Republican inmates in Northern Ireland’s Long Kesh prison — shit-smeared walls, beatings by guards, etc. — as a way into the mind of IRA man Bobby Sands (unforgettably played by Michael Fassbender), the hunger striker whose resolve made world headlines. After an hour of this, we the audience are finally tough enough to look at the moral rapprochement between Sands and Father Moran (Liam Cunningham), the priest who tried to dissuade him from killing himself. Not a perfect political drama, but close enough. Costarring Liam McMahon and Stuart Graham (96 min.).
